Been here many times and never had anything but excellent food and service. Great selection from all day breakfast to main meals and home made cakes. Coffee is some of the best in the area.

Very clean cafe which is accessed by going up a flight of stairs. We have ate here on a few occasions and have never been disappointed. Good selection of food, sandwiches, baked potatoes, toasties available. Highly recommend the scones.

Tea and various coffees available all of which are good.
We would highly recommend.

The food here is very tasty and good value. The staff are all helpful but not in your face. This is our restaurant of choice for morning coffee and midweek lunches. Be aware that it is a first floor restaurant and there is no lift, but they do have street-level tables outside. The toilets are accessible to all, being at ground floor level.

We had lunch in here twice and thought the food was variable. The locally smoked chicken sandwich was delicious; as was the lemon cupcake but other items were pretty run of the mill. Unfortunately we were unable to sample the scones as there were none left....surely a good sign but on "coffee morning" day it may be an idea to have extras for the afternoon as several people were asking for the scones. Staff were pleasant but it would be an idea to ensure someone is always at front of house for customers arriving.

Only paid a brief visit, but were dismayed to find the premises up for sale. Surely a chance for someone to take over what must be one of the finest eating places in town.
